IIM Udaipur, 6 February 2013: IIM Udaipur is hosting the Udaipur Amazing Race, a unique Intra-collegiate contest on Sunday, February 10 where 10 student teams (having 2 members each) will have to traverse a given route around the city going through many of its most famous (and some not-so-famous) locations in the shortest time possible.

Making things interesting will be the fact that the participants will have to carry out certain tasks at each of these locations (called pit stops) that will aid them in moving ahead of their competitors in the Race. There will be a total of 8 such pit stops along the way, covering a wide breadth of all that the city has to offer.

The first team to arrive back at the starting point after having covered the other pit stops will be declared the winners. The major aim of the event by IIM Udaipur is to give a chance for students to explore the numerous unique locations of the City of Lakes and Fountains.

The organizers, which include ‘Potpourri’ – the IIMU Literary Society and ‘Codered’ – the IIMU Event Management Club will be videotaping the entire event and putting up an edited version of the entire Race on various online social media outlets.

This will also provide a unique way for the city to promote its most attractive and unique locations to a younger audience who may not be familiar with its tourism heritage. Overall, the Udaipur Amazing Race will be a promotion for Udaipur’s great atmosphere and exciting locales.

Potpourri, the literary society of IIM Udaipur aims at catering to a diverse field of activities, which include everything from quizzes to JAM and late night movie sessions. Their mission is to address the students’ need to move beyond activities that go beyond the academic sphere.

On the other hand, Codered is IIM Udaipur’s Event Management Club that undertakes organization of all major events on campus, such as the Fresher’s and Farewell parties as well as gatherings during major festivals.
